The week ending 6/22/18 was a good one, indeed, for our Fill-The-Gap Portfolio that you've been tracking for the last three and a half years. It remains the only completely transparent, actively managed portfolio on Seeking Alpha that you can track and mirror if you'd like to achieve the same growth of capital and dividend income that we have.
It was such a good week, our mutual retirements came that much closer. So close, I could almost make out this sign.....
We outperformed the broad S&P 500 index by a wide margin, each day and for the week as a whole. Friday closed out even higher than our Friday 11 A.M. report.
FTG Portfolio Close, Friday, June 22, 2018
Friday, the FTG Portfolio gained .76%, or $4348, in market value compared to just .19% for the broad S&P 500 index. That is outperformance of exactly 4 times! Once again, our REITs ruled.
Our subscribers to the RODAT Portfolio did even better with a market gain of .87%, almost 5 times better than the S&P 500, and $4881 in capital appreciation.
